My Paddington Pups
Puppy pick up dates
Puppies will have their Wellness Exams and first immunization at 8 weeks old.
$1950. All puppies are the same price. We don't differentiate for gender or color.
Let's talk about color!!
Puppies are often born one color and change as they mature. First generation crosses are very hard to predict color and particularly shades of a color.
Can we guarantee size of puppies?
No. However, we can tell you the size of the parents and previous puppies.
Shipping our puppies?
Yes. we ship. We use Delta Pet Safe Programs for direct flights to the closest airport to you. We only choose non-stop flights and charge $350. for the flight, an airline approved crate, Veterinarian health certificate, rabies shot if 12 weeks or older and our travel.
Do we have a health guarantee?
Yes. We have a health guarantee on every puppy.
Can I visit my puppy?
We don't have people come out to visit their puppies prior to their first immunization or when we have a younger litter in the house that hasn't been vaccinated yet.
How do we pay for our puppy?
We accept zellepay.com, popmoney, bank transfers or wire transfers. Puppies are available until deposits or full payment is received and clears our bank.
ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. We accept $500.00 Non-Refundable Deposits from approved people on selected puppies to hold. We also accept a limited amount of approved people for our waitlist. The Waitlist requires a $500.00 Non-Refundabe deposit which is applicable for one year. Balances on selected puppies need to be paid in full by 6 weeks old on all puppies. All Deposits Are Non-Refundable.
Do we pre-screen families?
Absolutely. We have a questionnaire we ask people to fill out and we have a phone visit prior to approving a family for a puppy. Our puppy's new home is extremely important to us. We are looking for permanent homes and families who are looking for a puppy to bring into their family to be part of their life and life style. Questionnaires are available only by request.
Boys vs Girls
About 75% of people looking for puppies ask for girls and most are adamant they do not want a boy. When choosing a puppy as a family pet, you may want to rethink that or at least revisit it. The difference between boys and girls is very minimal in altered dogs. Testosterone is what causes a male dog to mark his territory and some to develop some undesirable traits for a house dog. If your male is neutered as a younger puppy they will never develop any of those traits as the testosterone rise begins at puberty. Boys can be extremely loyal, focused and often easier to train, lower key and all around amazing canine companions. Don't miss out on the perfect pet because of gender! Always follow your veterinarian's suggestions.
Puppy pick up dates
Puppies will have their Veterinarian Wellness Exam and first immunization at 8 weeks old. They will have been wormed at 2,4,6, & 8 weeks. They are ready to go home in the next week or two. We offer delivery for a fee.
What about people who just change their minds
For the most part, we meet wonderful families and individuals that provide truly great homes for our pups and are committed to raising them for their lives. Often they stay in touch. Most send pics of the dogs on special dates and events for many years.
Those families have been as much a joy for us as our puppies have been to them. It has been such a pleasure working with those people...watching the experience they have raising these great family companions. We feel very blessed having been a part of these families lives and are very thankful for the homes they've provided for our beloved puppies.
Occasionally, however, we have very difficult people that end up changing the rules for everyone. The person who is certain they want a puppy, pays a deposit or pays in full for a puppy after filling out our questionnaire and speaking with me, often several times before paying. They agree to our contracts and then begin demanding we do things different for them...changing the rules/policies. Extra pics on demand, facetimes, videos prior to 6 weeks. Everything from a sudden changes in everything we pre-discuss with them and our policies, to phone calls as early as 6am to as late as midnight. This only works if the customer has some respect for the process and the breeder. We've recently had people pay for their puppies and just suddenly decide to change their minds and expect a full refund. We are not a bank. We can't accept someone's payment for a puppy and just hold on to it on the off chance they may change their mind at some point. That has never happened before this year and has become a real issue this year. I have, out of the goodness of my heart refunded several people long after they paid and changed their mind. This is a real hardship on our family. Unfair to the rest of you and unfair to the puppy. As of 12/31/19 we are implementing some new clauses in our contract. We already state on our NRDR and our Bill of Sales and this page that all deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. We also state that NO CASH REFUNDS will result if puppies are returned. We are now adding that once puppies are paid for, there will be NO CASH REFUNDS. We will always honor our promise for a puppy up to one year, as stated in our contracts.
